Excerpt: Quick, what’s the top reason people put off PC upgrades? It’s the hassle of moving all those files, applications, and gigabytes of detritus built up on a PC over the years. That’s a hassle that Laplink says it can solve with PC Mover. According to the product claims, by hooking up two PCs, you can use the application to move all your documents, as well as applications! Yeah, if you’re as skeptical as we are, you don’t believe it, either.
Pros: Machine-to-machine migration; moves many apps with surprising fidelity.
Cons: Large moves can take days, especially over gigabit; key purchase limits you to a single move.
